Alright fuck it bro, someone asked for a review so here we go. E is a very very unique album I'll definitely give it that, if anything could clearly describe the genre "cloud rap" I'd point to this because it takes everything from the genre and amplifies it to an impressive degree. Sadly this isn't for me at all and this is evident because my favourite thing about this whole project was easily the ambient like dreamy instrumental, made me think I'd probably enjoy E ... read more

One point he's sounding like a male, effects-heavy version of Imogen Heap and the next he just... doesn't sound that good.

Worth the wait. For years, ECCO2K has been considered to have the most potential in Drain Gang, an artistic collective that includes himself, Bladee, Thaiboy Digital, Whitearmor, and Yung Sherman. But during the six years ECCO2K has been a member, he is only now dropping his first official solo album. Before now, he has had 20 singles, collaborated with Bladee and Thaiboy Digital on 2 albums, and been featured in a number of tracks. Though the collaborative albums with Bladee and Thaiboy have ... read more
